Who Is Dr. Preston Hansen?
“My passion is reconstruction and restoration.”
Dr. Preston Hansen grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, Dr. Hansen attended dental school at the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. He then went on to a formal 4 year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at UCSF Fresno where he received the most rigorous surgical training available for dentists and where he also took on the role of ENT, plastic surgeon, and oral surgeon for all emergency needs.
Dr. Hansen’s oral and maxillofacial surgery training gave him the opportunity to treat countless individuals who had suffered serious deformity from experiences such as trauma, cancer, and other pathologies. Not only did these patients need their diseases
treated, they needed their jaws and faces rebuilt and restored. The most satisfying part for him was reconstructing beautiful smiles and functioning teeth. Dr Hansen says that this aspect of treatment, restoring someone’s smile, has had the biggest impact on his life. “Being able to smile confidently and eat the food you want is an incredibly important part of feeling whole and enjoying life.”
Dr. Hansen is constantly learning and researching, so he can stay at the front line of dental implant based restorations. He is one of the first dentists and dental specialists in Utah to use 3D printing and virtual surgery computer software to plan and treat patients. Dr. Hansen and his team of dedicated professionals go the extra mile to ensure your comfort by providing friendly, understanding care.
